There are several hundreds of psychometric tests and tools in the market claiming to measure various human abilities, personality traits, disposition, values, preferences, knowledge and competence. Unfortunately, many of these tests have not undergone any peer-review or expert review process and claims made therein have not been verified by an independent body of qualified professionals.

These psychometric tests and assessments need to be evaluated through peer review or expert review process for their suitability as a measuring instrument before application in a business or industrial context. IIBP provides the platform for both – the test developer and test users to be sure about the quality of the test.
